Almost great

A lot of great titles to choose from, and it’s especially nice how many older and foreign titles there are. Shudder definitely knows their stuff. Major bonus points for the Joe Bib Briggs marathon. Whoever’s decision that was needs a raise!

My middling rating is only because I think Shudder still has room to grow, especially the design and layout of the platform. Limiting the ability to search only by title rather than other keywords like actor or director, especially with genre films like horror and thriller, is pretty annoying. It would be really nice and convenient to be able to isolate Shudder’s selection of Argento or Cronenberg films, for instance, or see which films feature Brigitte Lahaie. Also when searching through genres, it seems like the movies are always in reverse chronological order, which makes sense, but is also kind of frustrating while trying to brush up on the classics. Lastly, and I realize this is probably a licensing issue, but it’s kind of weird that there are various entries from certain series while omitting crucial chunks from those series (Phantasm without part 2, Halloween without parts 2 & 3).

Overall, been having a lot of fun with this app, but would look forward to some adjustments.

Love this channel!!

Huge horror fan here, this AppleTV app has become one of my favorite “channels” to watch. Speaking of channels, I love the four programmed channels that come up when you open the app: It Came From Shudder (general channel) Psychological Thrillers, Slashics, and Wicked Grin. I have been introduced to a lot of movies by just checking out what’s on.

I was initially worried there wouldn’t be enough titles to warrant a subscription, but I am happy to say that’s not been the case. Lots of oddball, older, and obscure movies, and the growing list of exclusives is getting better and better. Yes, there are a lot of foreign-language titles, to me that’s been a big plus, as I’d never have heard of most of them otherwise. And as for the movies that are already on other platforms: sometimes it’s just easier to discover them here, as they can get buried on other platforms.

I’ll skip over a lot of the (legit) functionality requests others have posted about and finish by saying: this horror nut is VERY happy he got an annual subscription

The collection ranges from cult classics to more modern day mainstream classics as well as direct to video titles and ones you may never have heard of. All types of horror genres are represented here whether they be haunted house stories or stories based on ghosts, serial killers, aliens, monsters, zombies, etc. The app is a very good companion to the collection making it easy for users to find content whether by alphabet, collection or keyword search. The design is of high production value with atmospheric menus and a slick fast loading interface. Members can create and manage lists of films they want to see of keep in mind.
